Clinical Massage that follows the Jing Method
Clinical Massage adopts a Biopsychosocial Approach. Pain is complex, it is affected by more than just issues in the tissues. It is important to take the time to consider how mental, social and environmental factors affect our whole wellbeing when assessing physical pain. Therefore, these elements of life are considered alongside an orthopaedic assessment of areas of pain and restrictions. This informs the treatment plan. I aim to reduce pain and improve movement in 1-6 treatments.
I use a range of techniques to decrease pain, increase range of movement restrictions and promote healing. I am trained in traditional massage strokes, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, acupressure points, pregnancy massage and advanced stretching. These skills are incorporated into a therapy session to achieve the best outcome for the client.
Communication is key. Feedback plays an important part in making these sessions flexible and responsive to your outcomes.
Self-care is integral to restoring long lasting function and wellness. If needed, I work with you to develop a self-care plan that is realistic. I aim to provide support and education and believe in working as a team towards recovery.
Self-care can vary from a simple practice that helps you relieve stress and tension in the moment to a set of strengthening and stretching exercises.
